    Joe and Agethena. With the drought were having you would think that the water supply would be more important then cheap gas. I just blows my mind that with the effects of global warming kicking in, in real time, that extracting grease, via fracking is considered a clean cheap source of energy, Insanity. Our planet sustains life it's ecosystems are under assault and the solution for more energy is to drill and frack?

    Technology and science all based on carbon fossil fuel from transportation to heating and running factories are all geared to an economy that is killing the planet. How stupid are humans that they think this disaster capitalist economy is worth our planets ability to sustain life. Mother nature does not give a rats ass about the national GPD or the profits of multinational corporations. Where keeping these giant dinosaur corporations profitable and the price is our home.  

    All of our global societies have been structured to keep these giant dinosaur corporations profitable and 'inevitable' with no real alternative. The price is our home the earth we all live on and the resources that sustain life. Just boggles the mind that these 'industries' and our economy the one that's a freaking house of cards will continue to turn the world into a living hell and call it sustainable growth. 'The world as we find it' says Axelrod but we did not find this world we are creating it.

      the more I thought didn't they test this? didn't they know what the consequences would be. I have to think the industry knew and just didn't care.

      Wjere dpes tje energy come from to power first the drilling to 8,000' and then the fracking? They run a fleet of huge trucks to power the process. Can you image the carbon foot print of that?
